    Alien Artifact? :)

    kidding I think but I have no idea about this. I found it near a hiking path in the woods. It is very thin and feels like aluminum. Any ideas??Click image for larger version.

    I agree with a "P". Probably from a flattened coin.

    A good luck piece or practice for an apprentice engraver, maybe

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    the back is just plain and it is super thin and light. about as thick as an aluminum can.

    Its English lettering, not alien. Unless the aliens learned the English alphabet. Google Old English fonts and you will see some examples of this style of lettering. Its a cool old 19th century find, silver for sure with the letter P hand engraved in Old English. Plain on the back tells me it attached to something where only the P side was visible. What it attached to, I dont know. It either fell off or the rest rotted away. It looks a little concave. Is it concave?

    Yep! Old English P. It may have some age to it. Nice find!

    If concave and just a WAG on my part, maybe a thumb piece off a flintlock pistol or rifle? They were inlayed behind the barrel tang in the stock wrist.

    It has the look of Middle Eastern or Turkish decoration to me, looks like silver as well.
    I can't see someone taking the time to engrave aluminum like that.

    Nagant's suggestion above is interesting.

    Yes it is concave. I have found several old horseshoes in the area so maybe a saddle decoration??
